Little King is, in fact, little. It’s a very small cocktail bar just off the Graham stop of the L train in East Williamsburg. The entrance is discreet (it’s right next to a bodega), and once you get inside it feels like a hotel lobby bar (a very small one). Service is very casual, and there’s even a kitchen in back that turns out small plates. Stop by with a date. It’s dark, intimate, and you can usually smell the food while it’s cooking in the kitchen. It doesn’t smell bad.
